Interesting fruit and caramel mix. Very nice malt character.

33cl bottle from Dranken Geers. Hazy amber red colour with very thin beige head. Woody aroma. It’s got some orangey type fruit in the mouth, with some malt to back it up. Unfortunately the woodyness dominates and makes it, if not unpleasant to drink, then less appealing.

Bottle, bought @ Willems, Grobbendonk.
[thanks to Skou for bringing this home to me]
Pours fine orange (not really amber) with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Aroma has lots of oranges, light citric, some biscuity malts and yeast. Medium to high carbonation, rather watery palate. Flavour is sweet, light bready and biscuity malts mixing with fruity esters and light hops. Fairly drinkable, but not terribly exciting.
